Eight Good gym members gathered at the entrance to Cold fall woods to help the friends remove a dangerous wood structure (Den) and repair the fence line protecting the new growth. (Very impressively Claudia and Hanry arrived early and wanted to use the extra time to do further mileage on their run. Give them a shout out along with the other new starters, Jess, Jenny, Guillaume, Patricia. ( click on the red name link to see their profile and like) Lets also shout out for Sarah with 17 good deeds! We gathered again inside the wood to meet Linda from the friends and took the opportunity introduce ourselves and chatted about our favorite UK holiday destination. Dorset , Cornwall, the Lakes and Scotland to name a few. Linda then outlined what we needed to do and we set about destroying the den structure and carrying its components to the fence line that needed repair. See photo of how the simple fence line protects the new growth compared to the other parts of the wood. It was a good work out with some heavy logs! We finished an hour later and gathered again to say our goodbyes.

Thanks for coming you did good!

keeping moving and exploring. Paul

Claudia said It was my first mission today and I felt it was very well organised and all runners were really lovely. Can’t wait to sign up for another one!

Linda said Thanks ... Brilliant job! please feel free to make any further comments below.

ps I included a photo of the Mond mausoleum at the local St Pancras and Islington cemetery seen taken on my run home. See the size of a house! The cemetry is open sundays and makes for a nice quiet run!
